Commonwealth Corporation (CommCorp) is a quasi-public agency that was established in 1996 through the merger of two Massachusetts nonprofit organizations: the Industrial Service Program and the Bay State Skills Corporation. The agency is responsible for administering and delivering a wide range of publicly and privately funded programs. CommCorp is governed by a 19-member board of directors that includes leaders from the private sector, organized labor, academia, and government.
As a nationally recognized leader in building industry sector partnerships that address the skill needs of specific employers in an industry, we create new or expanded capacity in education and training programs for demand occupations. We are committed to ensuring that Massachusetts businesses have access to a pipeline of highly skilled workers and that youth and adults in Massachusetts have pathways to good jobs in the knowledge economy.
Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development (EOLWD) manages the Commonwealth’s workforce development and labor departments to ensure that workers, employers, and the unemployed have the tools and training needed to succeed in the Massachusetts economy.
EOLWD oversees the Department of Unemployment Assistance, the Department of Career Services, the Department of Labor Standards, the Department of Industrial Accidents, the Department of Labor Relations, and the Commonwealth Corporation.
